People looking to find a new four-legged family member are being invited to participate in a national adoption event over the weekend.
The Allen County SPCA is teaming up with PetSmart Charities for the national adoption weekend Saturday and Sunday. During the event, dozens of adoptable dogs, cats, puppies and kittens will be at the PetSmart on Maysville Road. The Allen County SPCA will be offering same-day adoptions for families who are fully prepared to add a pet to their homes.
"We encourage people to come out to PetSmart this weekend, meet with the dogs and cats, and take their animal home the same day," executive director of the Allen County SPCA, Jessica Henry said. "We are grateful to PetSmart Charities for their commitment to pet adoption. They have been a wonderful partner for our shelter, and we appreciate the opportunity to participate in this big, national effort."
The event will cause the shelter at 4914 S. Hanna St to be closed to the public on Saturday and Sunday, September 15-16, 2018 and will re-open for normal business hours at 11:00 A.M. on Tuesday, September 18, 2018.
